One of the Victoria falls favorite hotels, the Zambezi Sun, was renamed in early 2016 as The Avani Vic Falls Resort.
You get the same good value for money, great service and fantastic view of the Falls as you ever did!
This 3-star hotel, ideal for singles, couples and families, is a place that captures the very soul of Africa: unpretentious, fun and welcoming. This is where you can unwind, relax and enjoy Africa’s greatest natural wonders in true Zambian style, or where you can test your courage by experiencing a number of thrilling, heart-stopping adventurous challenges. This hotel, with its warm, earthy architecture, inspired by an African walled village, is set to turn your stay into a memorable experience.
The ultimate base for the active adventure-lover, the Avani Vic Falls Resort, located right on the edge of the eastern cataract of the Victoria Falls, reflects the richness and diversity of the country’s heritage.
All 212 en-suite guestrooms are open and airy and decorated with a handcrafted fusion of Zambian designs, providing you with an atmosphere that’s bright, fun and welcoming. All rooms are air-conditioned, with satellite television, a minisafe, telephone, as well as tea and coffee-making facilities. There is also convenient access to ice machines and nearby vending machines, offering a variety of drinks and snacks.
All rooms spill outwards into the natural African bush or face inwards onto a vast, cool, landscaped pool, which is an irresistible oasis on hot summer days. From private, shaded balconies, you can welcome the early morning sun while making plans for yet another adventure-filled day. All rooms have spacious bathrooms, offering the luxury of a separate bath and shower. The accommodation has been designed with singles, couples and families in mind, offering guests a perfect choice of holiday lodgings. Thirty nine rooms have queen-size beds and sleeper-couches, with the remaining 167 offering either two double beds, a queen-size bed or two separate single beds. There are also two rooms with paraplegic facilities. The four suites offer guests even more in terms of luxury and space.
A hairstylist is available, while manicures, pedicures and massages can be arranged in the privacy of your own room or around the pool.
Outside activities are centred around the spacious pool area. Here, you are invited to submerge yourself in the cool, sparkling waters, sip colourful iced cocktails under the leafy Acacia trees and soak up the intoxicating ambiance of this truly remarkable place. For the hungry, there is an ‘alfresco’ grill located alongside the entertainment area at the pool, which is an ideal location for light, poolside lunches. An indoor buffet restaurant overlooking the pool serves breakfast and dinner. A quick walk across the lobby is all it takes to plan a day of adrenaline-pumping activity.
As the African sun sinks behind the rolling hills, sending ripples of gold and amber across the river waters, hippo and Fish Eagles can be heard calling out into the approaching darkness. Then it’s time to start preparing for a truly memorable night full of fun, romance and dancing to the sounds of live entertainment. Whether it’s a candlelit dinner for two with the promise of fine cuisine, a lively gathering of friends at the pool bar.
